Trump sounds ignorant of history. But racist ideas often masquerade as ignorance.
The White House's fumbling about slavery and the Civil War fits a long pattern in American politics.
The racial story is often told from assuming lips.
All year, that story has been told from the prevailing assumption that President Trump, White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and other allies of the Trump administration who have rhetorically rewrote the Civil War are “startlingly ignorant” about American history — not to mention the American present.
